thePodcast: Sam Cooper on parliamentarians colluding with China

For the week of June 16, 2024:

How many Canadian lawmakers are colluding with foreign adversaries, like Xi Jinping’s China? 

Who are they? Will they ever be held accountable? 

Those questions remain unanswered after the heavily censored special report by the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians (NSICOP). 

On this edition of thePodcast, host Bob Mackin welcomes Sam Cooper, the investigative reporter behind, to analyze the latest twist in Canada’s foreign interference scandal.

Cooper authored “Wilful Blindness: How a network of narcos, tycoons and CCP agents infiltrated the West” and his reporting for Global News in late 2022 and early 2023 helped pave the way for the Hogue Commission public inquiry into China’s meddling in Canada’s 2019 and 2021 federal elections. 

“For people like you and me, I don’t think there’s much shock value in what NSICOP confirmed,” Cooper said. “They did go further than Justice Hogue, in saying that some Canadian parliamentarians wittingly or through wilful blindness —which I liked that they used that word from my book title — knowingly accepted transfers, concealed or layered, to disguise their origin.”

Plus, this week’s Pacific Rim and Pacific Northwest headlines.
